Extreme Density

Seriously, Am I This Dense?
I am having major difficulties figuring out how to use WordPress with Dreamhost. Every time I think that I have found the proper document which explains how to set up my blog there I get routed to yet another document. I know that it shouldn’t be this hard, and that I am not that stupid (although I am starting to have my doubts).

Can one of you WordPressers point me in the right direction? The longer I wait to move from Blogger, the longer this process will take.

Flickr Is Acting Like A Fuckr?
Here’s another shot using the zoom lens I bitched about yesterday. (note: at “press time” Flickr is unable to show this photo. WTF?)

King And Queen

If the lens imperfection were to rear its ugly head it should be near dead center in this shot. Today I’m going to try and get shots of things like my whiteboard so I can make a final decision on whether or not to keep it.

What The Zot Is That?
I’ve been sucked up into the Mac World just a little further. The other day while listening to a podcast I heard about this site called MacZot. I don’t fully understand MacZot yet other than that they sell Macintosh software at a discount.

MacZot is currently offering a mystery grab bag of software, where the price is increasing as mystery items are revealed. I nearly jumped in on Day One when the price was $19.95, but I got cold feet. Of course I went back on Day Two and purchased the mystery grab bag for $24.95 (sometimes my financial decisions are weak). I’ll reveal the contents of my purchase when I find out.

Pulling My Falcons Season Ticket Rip Cord
Good news, I have been offered an upgrade for my Falcons season ticket (moving from section 316 to section 123). Bad news, the cost has more than doubled (to about $750). I’ve decided that with at least one trip, a couple of technology purchases, and some home and auto maintenance on the horizon that the cost is too rich for my blood so I have passed.

Look for me on my couch on Sundays during the Fall watching football on a big screen tv instead of at the dome live. It’s the way God intended it.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – dense
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing The Plastic Constellations — “Sancho Panza”
Website Of The Day – Maybe if I start exercising and begin enduring I can contribute to We Endure the social training log.

If you ever want a quick glance of the sites I’ve picked for my Websites Of The Day, you can check them out on del.icio.us, my user name is InsideThePerimeter (go figure), and they are all tagged as “blogged.”

Exercise (b)Log – With my photography class at 6:15pm-8:00pm Tuesdays are rough. How’s that for a lame excuse.

    You’re not dense, you’re a coder…and this stuff isn’t that complicated (unless you have 800+ posts, in which case it’s a pain in the arse) (or if you edit your directories and don’t know what you’re doing) (or…).

    It’s a one-click-install via dreamhost. Got an FTP client handy? What about phpmyadmin (per Dave)?

    One click install, then import from Blogger, then edit your template as you wish, then index redirect (http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Permanently_renaming_a_file_or_direct

    Former-coder, now manager. :

    I’ve done the one-click install, probably have a FTP client (but don’t know how to use it with dreamhost), have nothing from Dave, and will read your link today. That’s my status…

    You should always buy genuine Canon lenses for your… oh wait you’ve got a Nikon. Suckerrrr!

    @anon: You can live in your fantasy world if you wish. 😛 I’m completely satisfied with my camera, and it appears that the only time that this “imperfection” will be an issue is if I try to sell the lens.

  5. Maigh says:

    Sorry, didn’t mean you should have it from Dave, meant he reccomended it to me.

    Check your email for an invite to a WP love-in next Tuesday so we can get you sorted out once and for all.

    Can you post a pic of the actual lens (imperfection)?


  7. Paulie says:

    I’ll do my best. It may be hard for me to photograph, but I’ll try. Then I’ll have to hope that Flickr is up and running properly again. 🙂

  8. Maigh says:

    What are your specific challenges…looks like you’re doing okay…

    Woah woah WOAH!

    Where the fuck is my name on your blogroll, beyotch?
